Beneath The Hollow Chestnut Tree - Poem by Kelly Zion

Beneath the hollow chestnut tree
that grows broken heart-shaped leaves
grows the broken stump of a dream,
the broken, broken stump
beneath the hollow chestnut tree.

Beneath the hollow chestnut tree
that grows teardrop-shaped seeds
an old man forever leans
trying to find peace where peace will never be
beneath the hollow chestnut tree.

Beneath the hollow chestnut tree
that grows empty heart-shaped leaves
sits an old diamond ring in broken little pieces
smashed to smithereens
beneath the never-trees

where there is never peace
beneath the hollow chestnut tree
